Grisham Helps Write A Happy Ending For Several Jackson County Families

Some Jackson County families will soon have brand new homes thanks to novelist John Grisham.

After Katrina, the Mississippi native donated three and four bedroom homes in a box to the Jackson Chapter of Habitat for Humanity. Some of those houses were assembled Tuesday in Gautier by more than 50 Baptist volunteers from Virginia.

Habitat members say it is a extraordinary act of kindness for Grisham to give these homes to South Mississippians.

Habitat For Humanity will begin taking applications from Jackson County residents who want to be considered for a Habitat home. If you are interested, stop by Gautier Presbyterian Church. Applications will start being accepted Tuesday night at 6pm.
